Chocolate Glazed Mini Chocolate Toffee Loaves

Now for my mom, I knew I had to make her some mini loaves that she’s been dying for since I bought my mini loaf pan. I adapted this recipe by mixing milk chocolate toffee bits into the batter because she absolutely loves Heath bars. I also garnished the tops of the loaves with more toffee bits and pecans because she’s a huge fan of those as well.

Chocolate Glaze

Elinor Klivans

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • milk chocolate toffee bits for garnish, if desired
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a mini loaf pan
  2. Combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl. Set aside
  3. Beat butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
  4. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk
  5. Fold in 1/2 cup milk chocolate toffee bits. Pour into prepared pan
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely
  7. To make the glaze, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine the heavy cream, butter, and corn syrup. Cook, stirring, until the butter melts and the mixture is hot but not boiling. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate. Let stand for 30 seconds, then stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the glaze is smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Let the glaze cool until thickened, about 20 minutes
  8. Spread the glaze over the tops of the loaves or dip them directly into the glaze. Top with milk chocolate toffee bits, if desired
